Days after Mouni Roy exited Nawazuddin Siddiqui's Bole Chudiyan citing unprofessional behaviour, the makers have roped in Tamannaah Bhatia as the female lead. The Houseful actress shared her excitement on being part of the new project and revealed that the film’s story attracted her.

"I'm looking forward to this project. The script is good and this is the first time I will be attempting such a multi-layered character in a mainstream Bollywood film. What really caught my attention was the story, which revolves around a relevant issue," Mouni was quoted as saying by Times Now.

The actress even took to her Twitter account to share the news with her fans.

Directed by Nawazuddin’s brother Shamas Siddiqui, the film will be produced by Rajesh Bhatia and Kiran Bhatia.
